360 Back-Compat Updated Again 36

Despite news many months ago that they weren't going to be doing much in the way of updating anymore, there's a new raft of old games that you'll be able to play on your Xbox 360. Some of the highlights include: "JSRF: Jet Set Radio Future, MechAssault 2: Lone Wolf, Project Gotham Racing 2, The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, and Silent Hill 2: Restless Dreams"

    You might want to know that there's still some glitches in a few of those games. In JSRF, for example, the name of the areas in the map flickers a lot for me. There are also obvious framerate drops while doing quick turning, which didn't happen in an actual xbox.

    The game is still playable, but it's not quite the same thing as it is on the original hardware.

    I counted 383 out of approx 1000 games [] that is approx 38% backwards compatibility and it only took approx two years to get there, well done Microsoft.

    Nice link there, Zonk.

    Seriously, I've been here for "many months" and I don't recall seeing anything saying "no moar back compat!" If anything, I've seen Microsoft insisting the opposite, and I also remember people being surprised that Microsoft was still working on it when their last update came out a few months ago.

    So I have to ask: where are you getting your information?
